Carolina Law alumni are nearly everywhere you turn. Twelve of the past 25 governors of North Carolina have been graduates of the UNC School of Law. Carolina Law graduates are judges, county officials, business owners and volunteers. They are attorneys within the governments of 30 U.S. states and sit on the faculty of 38 universities in the U.S. and abroad. They are special agents for the FBI, and chief executives and legal counsel for Nike, Microsoft and Disney.
They are also an active part of life at the law school. Alumni participate in career nights, on-campus recruitment events, employer receptions, mock interviews and panel discussions. Most importantly, they hire fellow Carolina Law graduates, a critical component of law school rankings and a benefit to both students and the organizations for whom they work.
“Students come out of Carolina Law prepared and eager to do top quality legal work,” said Andy Hessick, professor and associate dean for strategy. “Carolina Law’s alumni network provides an amazing potential resource for helping students land jobs.”
